Izzo vivi or Alex, fantastic build quality, rotart pump on the alex, both great value but not cheap, spares are much cheaper than other brands and readily available from bella barista
mazza mini e grinder, flawless, easy, accurate, last forever, live the izzo really
bella barista will let you try most of them out, they are in northampton and do a course/tasting/testing course for Â£25 with dicounts if you buy anything
grinder and coffee most important part, HASBEAN is brilliant, great service and great fresh coffee, I notice the difference after 2 weeks and now drink tea in all coffee shops!!! I can't stomach what they produce.
HX machines are more consistent but you need to know a bit more how to use the manual ones, I like manual as nothing really to go wrong and they look great
